We Gotta Talk About Michael Barbaro, The Host Of The NYT's Daily Podcast

The man, the myth, the New York Times reporter turned podcast host.

Posted on

If you haven’t been listening to The Daily, it’s a podcast launched by the New York Times and hosted by reporter and former host of The Run-Up, Michael Barbaro.

Each episode is only 15 to 23 minutes long and tackles one or two stories from the news that week. If, like me, you listen to it every day on your commute, you’ve noticed that something’s going on with Michael…


And I don't think any of us were prepared for the April 21 episode, when Michael revealed that he has a husband who speaks perfect French.


That's amazing. But also, what the heck, Michael? What other revelatory personal details are you planning to drop this week?!
